GrandView Learning Garden at the MarVista Farmers Market Sunday, March 7

That’s right!  We will be hosting a booth at the MarVista Farmers Market, tomorrow, Sunday, March 7, from 9am to 2pm.

We will be showing off our worm composter and the calendula salve we made with the fourth graders.  Come by, chat with us, see some great pictures of activities in the garden, check out our nourishing salve, or play with some worms.  We can’t wait to see you there!

Oh, and here is what MarVista Green Committee posted about us:

Are your kids having this much fun at school?

Melissa Davis runs a school garden at Grand View, where all students are welcome to learn hands-on. They will be our guests at the Green Booth on March 7th.

Classrooms are assigned a raised bed and the children plant the seeds, cultivate the plants, and ultimately, harvest and eat the vegetables. They are learning about respecting nature and insects, trying new foods, the usefulness of herbs, composting, and vermicomposting. Melissa and several of her students will be our guests at the Green Booth and will bring their own worm composter and the calendula salve that they are making with the fourth grade students.

Bring your kids! Talk to Melissa about how she got involved – maybe it will inspire a program that you can participate in!

      It was a great day! Informed lots of community members about our garden and got some people excited. Can’t wait for our Green Garden Showcase in April, where people can come tour the garden.
